Man Utd legend Cole: You should fear Hernandez

Manchester United legend Andy Cole is impressed by his old club's current strike-force.

Cole was part of United's ­sensational Treble-winning frontline in 1999 along with Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Cole, who scored 93 times in 195 games for the Red Devils, said: "United still have the better forwards.

"They are obviously missing Wayne Rooney - who is a ­match-winner when he's fit - but Javier Hernandez is one to be feared. He's had a fantastic start.

"Michael Owen may not have played as many games as he would have liked, but they still have ­Federico Macheda coming through as well.

"Then there's Dimitar Berbatov. He may be languid in his style, but he is very good in the air and can produce a moment of magic.

"Sir Alex Ferguson will want them to get to where we were in 1999. All four of us could play ­together. We all clicked. I don't know why. It was freakish."
